Nothing can separate us from God’s love for us. Nothing. No angel. No demon. No cosmic ruler. And not even the hardest thing ever – waiting.
Jesus is not on any one person’s or one nation’s side. Jesus is on the side of God. God is on God’s side. The Trinity is for the Trinity. And so when it comes to humanity, God is on everyone’s side. Because all of humanity has a worship problem. A holiness defect.
We can rejoice in the midst of this great battle. How? Because our dwelling is no longer the earth and sea, but ours are the heavenly places, for we are seated with Christ at the right hand of God. Therefore, rejoice, O heavens and you who dwell in them! That’s us!
“To live is Christ” reminds us of who we really are. We are super heroes. Filled with the power of the cross. Filled with the love of Christ.
“To live is Christ” means you have already won. So stand. Stand and look out over your victory in Jesus. Stand in God’s armor knowing that his promises are true and his love for you is never failing. You can live in victory today. Stop fighting for it and stand upon it instead.
“To live is Christ” is not the end of morality. It’s the beginning. The indwelling life of Christ has given us the knowledge of good and evil through the shared life of Christ.
